New Jersey’s energy plan up for public review

    The first public review of N.J. Gov. Chris Christie’s energy plans is set for later today. Residents, business owners and lobbyists will have a chance to comment on the plan that addresses the state’s energy needs for the next 10 years.


    The meeting begins this afternoon at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, as the Associated Press reports. Christie wants 22.5 percent of the state’s energy to come from renewable resources by 2021, and the plan aim to drive down consumers’ energy costs and promote green technologies, while not ruling out nuclear power.
